There is a sub-second dropout of some kind at about 4:48 into Playin'. Perhaps
it was a short loss of FM signal. It doesn't sound digital.
The slowdown you hear at 9:18 into Wharf Rat is due to the splice in from the
alternate source that Charlie mentions below. The reel flips in Wharf Rat
and Help on the Way were spliced from an alternate FM source.
Charlie tells me this was the best sounding out of four copies he listened to.
These are verbatim notes to me from Charlie:
Recorded by firstname.lastname@example.org on 12-31-76,
Converted to CD by charliemiller87@earthlink.
No Noise Reduction of any kind was used on this
recording, analog or digital.
Cool Edit Pro was used to normalize and to remove some
pops, but there are still quite a few static pops.
Sound troubles at the source caused the Level to begin
low and slowly increase on Mama Tried. There are two
reel flips, one at Wharf Rat (9:14) and one at Help On
the Way (3:51).
We took his master reel and played it on the tandberg
deck it was recorded on. We plugged that directly into
my sbm1, which then went into the tascam cdrw700 (This
was done almost 2 years ago, which is before I had my
soundcard). I thrn took the CDs (today) and normalized
them, then retracked them. I wouldn't have done
anything, but the tracking was done "on the fly" and
was very poor.

This Charlie Miller version is clearly my preferred source. It is funny that it has so few hits. The show is as remarkable as the set list. Though from Good Lovin on-yeah, oh yeah. The Good Lovin starts with a bit of that Bo Diddley rhythm to let you now it is on. The vibe continues into Sampson. I was lulled into a comfort zone and looked up about halfway through Scarlet knowing that there was something for the ages going on here. Then onto Around and Around which is a slowed down version. Initially I wondered if it would kill the energy-No way Jose. This is how they were playing it in 76, with tasteful fire and restraint. The mix has all boys mixed in right. Keith brings his A game and compliments Jerry nicely throughout, but especially in Morning Dew. I love Jerry`s tone on this occasion. The best of 76, hmmm maybe, but really I may have to give that accolade to one of the early June shows. I`ll close my eyes and throw a dart at one of the Boston dates. Anyway, don`t overlook this as the 2nd set is actually 77, but really retains what was great and exceptional about key 76 shows:Restraint and Tasty without a loss of vitality.
